\ earned for Alberger Equipment the repu- 

tation: Efficient, Dependable, Accessible. 

While this Bulletin illustrates many different 
types of heat exchange equipment, its scope 
does not permit the display of all the varieties 
Alberger builds. The following pages outline 
in detail standard types of Alberger Heaters 
and furnish useful information for their proper 
selection. However, as it is impracticable to 
cover all possible applications, attention is 
directed to the fact that the Alberger Engi- 
neering Department is always available to 
assist in solving special heat transfer problems.

A TYPE and SIZE of HEATER for 

EVERY PURPOSE 

r F N efficiently fulfill practically every industrial heater 
**- requirement with standard equipment, Alberger Heat- 
ers are built in a wide variety of types, materials and 
sizes. Described in this catalog are four kinds of instantane- 
ous heaters; storage and oil heaters and condensate coolers. 

Instantaneous Heaters are usually employed to furnish a 
constant supply of hot water where the demands are not 
widely fluctuating; however, they may be used where peak 
conditions are encountered, provided sufficient steam is 
available during periods of maximum demand. Standard 
instantaneous heaters, operated at a relatively high tem- 
perature range are built with floating heads or U-bend tubes 
to compensate for the resultant expansion and contraction. 

For this general class of service, Alberger builds three types 
of Instantaneous Heaters. The Type FC equipped with 
corrugated tubes and the Type FP with plain tubes are of 
floating head design; each type can be furnished with either 
a water channel or bonnet depending upon the degree of tube 
accessibility desired. In the Type U Instantaneous Heater, 
the tubes are bent into the form of a U with both ends rolled 
into the same tube sheet at one end of the heater. 

For operating conditions of low temperature ranges, such as 
prevail in swimming pool and humidifier service, Type AB 
Instantaneous Heaters are recommended. They are equipped 
with corrugated tubes rolled into fixed tube sheets. The cor- 
rugations in the tubes absorb the slight expansion and 
contraction. 

When an intermittent demand for hot water exists, savings 
in steam and a more uniform heat consumption can be main- 
tained by using Alberger Type S Storage Heaters, Water is 
heated constantly. During slack periods the surplus of hot 
water is stored for use during maximum demands, preventing 
peak loads on the boiler and avoiding waste of exhaust steam.

Attetof&i TYPE FC 
INSTANTANEOUS HEATERS with CORRUGATED TUBES 



THE Alberger Standard Type FC Instantaneous 
Heater has been designed with the object of secur- 
ing the highest possible degree of heat transmission and 
to render long, dependable service at a minimum cost of 
operation. This heater is recommended for the heating 
of liquids having low viscosities and is particularly suited 
for operation where the available floor space is limited. 
It can be furnished for vertical or horizontal installation, 
performing with equal efficiency in either position. 
Many design features incorporated in the Alberger 
Type FC Heater appeal particularly to the operating 
engineer especially the high efficiency obtained from the 
use of Alberger Corrugated Tubes, that allows a heater 
construction of minimum size with resultant low first 

cost. 

The channel construction permits the opening of the 
heater for inspection or replacement of tubes without 
breaking piping connections. The channel is an ideal 
settling chamber; as, upon entrance of the water into 
the large areas of the channel, the high velocity through 
the tubes is suddenly reduced and the direction of flow 
reversed, suspended matter deposits where it can be 
blown off through blow off openings provided on the 
channel cover for this purpose. With the selection of 
bonnet construction, accessibility to the tubes can still 
be retained by breaking the water connections and re- 
moving the bonnet. The sectional drawing at the bottom 
of this page furnishes a basis of comparison between the 
channel and bonnet arrangement. 



Floating head construction prevents severe strains due 
to thermal expansion and contraction. Guide pins 
secured to the floating tube sheet insure its proper 
position with reference to the shell diameter and help 
support the weight of the tubes. 

A steam baffle mounted in the steam distributing dome 
diffuses the entering steam over the heating surface and 
guards against direct impingement on the tubes. 

Where the length of tube necessitates, a tube support 
plate rigidly anchored at the center of the tube length 
and directly opposite the steam inlet eliminates vibra- 
tion of the tubes. The importance of avoiding tube 
vibration is apparent when it is remembered that vibra- 
tion will cause crystallization of the tube material with 
resultant failure of the tube wall. 

To prolong the life of the packing, all gasket surfaces are 
accurately machined and recessed; gasket areas and bolt 
stresses are figured for proper pressure. 

Alberger has derived a method and developed special 
tools to expand tube ends into tube sheets, which assure 
an absolute and permanent bond. 

In addition to these unusual features, Alberger Type FC 
Heaters have the same ruggedness of construction and 
quality of workmanship and materials that have always 
distinguished Alberger Equipment. 

The following tabulations apply to standard construc- 
tion, however, Type FC Heaters can be designed to suit 
special corrosion or pressure conditions.

HIGH CAPACITY from AlUtoie* CORRUGATED TUBES 



FOR heating water, Alberger Spirally corrugated 
copper tubes are highly and unreservedly recom- 
mended for their excellent efficiency. Many tests indicate 
an increase of as much as 65% in the amount of heat 
transfer as compared with plain tubes because the spiral 
corrugations impart a turbulent action to the water as 
it passes through the tubes, greatly increasing the heat 
transmission. 

Alberger corrugated tubes have a natural tendency to 
stay clean, thereby maintaining efficient performance 
over a long operating period. The rotating motion of the 



water actuated by the tube corrugations produces a 
pronounced scouring effect that prevents an accumu- 
lation of silt on the tube walls. This tube construction 
has the added advantage of inducing sufficient flexing 
in the corrugations due to thermal expansion and con- 
traction to break up hard scale deposits. 

These tubes are corrugated with special machinery in 
our shops by a process developed by ourselves. After 
corrugation they are subjected to a severe hydrostatic 
test and rigid inspection.

*The Capacity ratings of these tables are conservative and 
frequently are exceeded in actual operation. 

In specifying a particular heater, the desired capacity and 
teniperature range must be given in order to construct the 
heater with the necessary number of passes. Where no 
rating is given, a condition exists in which the preceding 
heater, by its proper pass construction has a greater capacity 
than the following larger one and therefore would not be 
economical. Such an occurrence is due to the fact that one 



heater may have its highest capacity with a water velocity 
corresponding to the maximum allowable friction loss at a 
certain number of passes and the next larger heater must 
have in consequence a smaller number of passes which 
decreases the velocity and of necessity depresses the heat 
transfer rate correspondingly. 

The given capacities are ONLY for water. Regarding capaci- 
ties for other liquids than water and conditions not listed, 
consult the nearest Alberger representative or our Office,

Heater, Typo FP. 




AiMenne* TYPE FP 



INSTANTANEOUS HEATERS with PLAIN TUBES 



THE Alberger Type FP Instantaneous Heater has 
its most useful application for heating raw water 
or viscous liquids, where only a low pressure loss through 
the heater is permissible, or where the condition of the 
liquid necessitates frequent cleaning of the tubes; it is 
also very suitable for extremely high pressure service 
where tubes of heavy wall thicknesses must be used. 

Equipped with plain instead of corrugated tubes but 
otherwise of the same design and construction as the 
Type FC Heater previously described, the following out- 
standing features are retained in the Type FP Heater: 
accessibility for quick, easy inspection and cleaning of 



tubes (if furnished with channel construction without 
breaking of pipe connections), multi-pass arrangement 
for high efficiency, floating head to compensate for 
thermo expansion, tube support plates to prevent 
vibration of tubes, recessed gaskets for tightness, steam 
baffle for proper steam distribution, guide pins to pre- 
vent sagging of tubes, movable saddles for easy installa- 
tion, sturdy construction for long life, quality workman- 
ship for accurate assembly. 

The following tabulations apply to standard construc- 
tion, however, Type FP Heaters can be designed to suit 
special corrosion or pressure conditions.

SPECIFICATIONS 



SPECIFY: A \ Horizontal f Instantaneous Heater of the 

} Vertical J 
closed water tube type. It shall be floating head construction 
and equipped with %" O.D. Plain Copper Tubes. The Heater 
shall be furnished with water channel to permit inspection 
or removal of tubes without breaking steam or water piping 
connections. (If a bonnet is desired instead of the channel 
specify: The heater shall be furnished with the bonnet 
arrangement.) This heater shall have ample capacity to 



heat GPH of water (or other liquid) from ° F. to °F., 

when supplied with sufficient steam at,... .Lbs. Gage pressure. 

The pressure loss through the tubes shall not exceed 
.Lbs./sq. in. The liquid spaces shall be designed for a work- 
ing pressure of Lbs./sq. in., and the steam spaces for a

*The Capacity ratings of these tables are conservative and 
frequently are exceeded in actual operation. 

In specifying a particular heater, the desired capacity and 
temperature range must be given in order to construct the 
heater with the necessary number of passes. Where no 
rating is given, a condition exists in which the preceding 
heater, by its proper pass construction has a greater capacity 
than the following larger one and therefore would not be 
economical. Such an occurrence is due to the fact that one 



heater may have its highest capacity with a water velocity 
corresponding to the maximum allowable friction loss at a 
certain number of passes and the next larger heater must 
have in consequence a smaller number of passes which 
decreases the velocity and of necessity depresses the heat 
transfer rate correspondingly. 

The given capacities are ONLY for water. Regarding capaci- 
ties for other liquids than water and conditions not listed, 
consult the nearest Alberger representative or our Office.

INSTANTANEOUS HEATERS with U-BEND TUBES 



THE foremost advantage of the Alberger Type U 
Instantaneous Heater lies in its simplicity of the 
design and low first cost. It is best suited for heating 
clean water or liquids which do not have a tendency to 
foul or scale the inside of the tubes. Where severe fouling 
or scaling conditions exist, Alberger Type FC or FP 
Heaters are more preferable because straight tubes can 
more readily be cleaned. 

The heating element of the Type U Heater consists of a 
group of U-shaped tubes, expanded at each end into 
the tube sheet. Alberger U-bends are formed by draw- 
ing each tube over a mandrel while bending; a method 
that assures full wall thickness and area in the bend. 
By proper baffle arrangement, the liquid can be multi- 
passed through the heater to obtain high heat transfer. 



The tube bundle can be removed from the shell for in- 
spection and cleaning the outside of the tubes. 
Each single U-bend compensates independently from 
the others for thermal expansion and contraction. Tube 
support plates are provided to prevent vibration of the 
tubes and to support the element in the shell. All joints 
have recessed gasket surfaces for tightness and long life 
of the packing. A steam baffle properly distributes the 
entering steam and protects the tubes from direct im- 
pingement. The same quality of material and workman- 
ship and the same sturdy construction eminent in Type 
FC and FP Heaters distinguish Alberger Type U Heaters. 
The following tabulations apply to standard construc- 
tion only; as all Alberger equipment, Type U Heaters can 
be built to suit special corrosion or pressure conditions.

Alberger Heating System Heaters because of the 
high efficiency obtained from the use of corrugated 
copper tubes and correct design. 

All the features of Alberger design and construction as 
covered under the different types of Instantaneous 
Heaters in the forepart of this Bulletin are embodied in 
the construction of Alberger Heating System Heaters or 
Hot Water Converters, in fact all Alberger Instantaneous 
Heaters are suited for this service. 

The most common range through which water shall be 
heated in Converters is from 160°-190° F., and therefore 
the capacity tables of all Instantaneous Heaters show 
this range and give capacities in gallons per hour. 

In many instances architects and engineers specify the 
required capacity in square feet of E.D.R. (Equivalent 
Direct Radiation). To find the necessary gallons of 
water per hour to circulate through the system at the 
above temperature range, use the following simple 
formula: 

Sq. Ft, of E.D.R. x ,68 = Gallons per hour 
When thus the GPH of water has been found, turn to 



the capacity table of the type of Instantaneous heater 
desired and locate under the proper steam pressure and 
the 160°- 190" temperature range the correct size of 
heater. 

Example: 22,800 Sq. Ft. of E.D.R. required with 

Steam available at 5 Lbs. Gage 

22,800 x .68 = 15,500 GPH of water required 

It has been decided to use a Type FC Heater with cor- 
rugated copper tubes, so it is only necessary to consult 
the Type FC capacity table for steam at 5 Lbs. Gage. 

Follow across the page along the hot water converter 
range (160°-190° F.) until a 15,500 GPH capacity is 
reached, which will show that an FC-12-B Heater should 
be selected. 

The maximum friction with this amount of water flowing 
through the heater will not exceed 8 Lbs. 

If a Type FP or Type U Heater has been decided on, 
select the proper size heater in the same manner from 
the Type FP or Type U capacity tables. 

For Heating System Heaters with lower friction loss or 
for gravity circulation, consult the nearest Alberger 
Representative or our Home Office. 



CLOSED FEED WATER HEATERS 



E 



VERY boiler plant should have an Alberger Closed 
Feed Water Heater because if cold water is fed 
into a boiler, additional fuel must be burned to raise its 
temperature to the boiling point representing a costly 
waste of fuel inasmuch as in practically every plant 
exhaust steam is available. Further, the life of the boiler 
is materially lengthened by injecting hot instead of cold 
water, as cold water upon striking the hot boiler plates 
will set up excessive strains due to unequal expansion of 
the shell. 

An Alberger Closed Feed Water Heater can be selected 
from the Type FC, Type FP or Type U Instantaneous 
Heater capacity tables. 

To ascertain the gallons per hour of water required for 
the maximum rated boiler horsepower use the following 
formula: 

GPH-B.H.P. x 3.6 

Next, determine the minimum temperature of the mix* 
ture of make up water and returns which will be the 
inlet water temperature at the heater. For economical 



heater size the water outlet temperature should be kept 
approximately 15° to 20° below the temperature of the 
available steam. 

Example : 

Required a Feed Water Heater for a boiler with a 
maximum rating of 1200 B.H.P. 

Exhaust steam is available at 2 Lbs. Gage pressure 
( = 218° F.) 

The winter temperature of returns and make up water 
is 100° F., and the mixture should reach the boiler at 
200° F. 

Amount of Feed water required 

1200 x 3.6-4330 GPH 

If a Type FC Heater is desired, turn to the Type FC 
capacity table for 2 Lb. steam pressure and follow across 
the page at a temperature range 100°-200° until a figure 
is reached corresponding to the required capacity. The 
nearest to this amount would be 4350 GPH; therefore, 
an FC-12-B Heater should be selected.

T 



O meet the requirements involved in air conditioning, Alberger designed 
the Type AB Heater, a compact unit of simple design, to heat large 
quantities of water through small temperature ranges. Proven ideal for 
such conditions, it is used as standard by virtually all the leading manu- 
facturers of air conditioning equipment. 

The Alberger Type AB Heater gained equal popularity in swimming pool 
service which also requires the moderate heating of large quantities of water. 
Single pass construction to permit the handling of large quantities with 
minimum frictional resistance, corrugated copper tubes to obtain the 
highest possible heat transmission and to absorb the small amount of thermal 
expansion and contraction, cast iron shell and water bonnets to minimize 
corrosion are the principal design features that have earned for the Alberger 
Type AB Heater its outstanding position.

WHERE large quantities of hot water are withdrawn at irregular 
intervals, hot water storage heaters render the most economical 
and satisfactory service. Water is heated at a uniform rate and stored 
during periods of low demand for use at peak requirements, thereby 
preventing overloads on the steam supply. The constant flow of 
steam into the heating element assures maximum heat recovery from 
exhaust steam which, if used for instantaneous heating, would be 
partially wasted by discharge into the atmosphere during periods of 
low demand. 

Meeting the most exacting demands in construction and quality of 
workmanship and materials, Alberger Storage Heaters have gained a 
wide acceptance among architects, engineers and owners. Some of the 
original Alberger Storage Heaters still perform efficiently in continuous 
service. 

The Alberger Standard Type S Storage Heater consists of a welded 
or riveted steel plate tank and a removable U-bend heating element. 
All tanks are carefully designed for maximum strength with suitable 
plate thicknesses for various working pressures as shown in the table 
on page 29. Capable and qualified welders who periodically submit 
test plates for A.S.M.E. approval fabricate Alberger welded storage 
tanks. Riveted tanks are built in accordance with the best boiler 
making practice with rivets of proper size and spacing. Longitudinal 
seams are either double or triple riveted and designed for proper joint 
efficiency. Tanks 24" in diameter and larger are provided with man- 
holes, smaller tanks with handholes* 

The heating element is composed of a group of l}4" O.D. No. 17 
B.W.G. seamless drawn copper tubes formed into U-bends and each 
end expanded into a forged steel tube sheet. Alberger U-bends are 
formed by drawing each tube over a mandrel while bending; a method 
that assures full wall thickness and area in the bend. A rigid support 
plate holds them firmly in position and prevents vibration. The 
steam bonnet of cast iron construction is bolted to the tube sheet 
and tank nozzle. 

Steam and water spaces are subjected to a hydrostatic test pressure 
50% in excess of their respective working pressure. 

The following data and tables permit quick and accurate selections 
of Alberger Standard Type S Storage Heaters. They are also essen- 
tially applicable for special construction.

THE Alberger Standard Type S Storage Heater is 
ideally suited for the great majority of applications, 
however, various special conditions such as local code 
requirements, extremely high pressures, local water con- 
ditions and corrosive liquids often require special 
construction. 

Alberger builds storage type heaters to suit any such 
conditions and has the experience and facilities not only 
to manufacture to the rigid specifications of the ASME 
Code for Unfired Pressure Vessels, but also to build 
storage heaters with tanks and other parts fabricated of 
such corrosion resisting materials as: COPPER-SILI- 
CON ALLOY, MONEL METAL, STAINLESS STEEL,

Alberger also builds floating head type heating elements 
with straight tubes arranged in two passes. The first 
pass comprising two thirds of the total number of tubes 
presents a large area for the flow of the full volume of 
steam, the second pass carries a smaller volume and 
returns the condensate. 

Where it is necessary to heat the water with two separate 
heating mediums, two elements can be installed to 
operate independently without the danger of contami- 
nating one medium with the other. 

Vertical Storage Heaters with specially designed heating 
elements can be furnished where available floor space for 
installation is limited.

SUMMARY: 



Hourly heating capacity 50% of 1830 = 915 Gal. per hour. 

Tank-storage capacity 60% of 1830 = 1100 Gals. 

The tank should have a storage capacity of 1100 Gallons and the heating element a capacity to heat 915 GPH of 
water from 40° to 180° F* Assume that exhaust steam is available at atmospheric pressure (212° F.)

For the selection of the proper size 
storage heater, see typical example page 27. 



The table below on page 28 and 29 outlines storage and 
ea parity data for Alberger Standard Storage Heaters. At the 
left are shown standard tank sizes with their code numbers 
and storage capacities. To the right of each tank size arc 
listed the square feet of heating surfaces which can be fur- 
nished for that particular size of tank. The headings above 
the heating surface figures represent the element sizes and 



number of tubes. For example, an Alberger Type S Storage 
Heater, size 15-F-3Q has a tank 42" diameter x 144" long 
with a storage capacity of 860 gallons and is equipped with a 
size F Element, containing 30 lubes totaling 228 Sq. Ft. 
of heating surface. See page 30 for dimensions of Alberger 
Type S Storage Heaters.

Purchasers of steam from a central station desire to get 
steam at lowest cost. Cooling condensate before its 
return to the central station or its discharge into the 
sewer constitutes a definite saving as all heat extracted 
is transferred to some other liquid that must be heated. 
This saving quickly returns the small outlay involved in 
the installation of an Alberger Type E Condensate 
Cooler. 

Being of fixed tube sheet construction, the Type E 
Condensate Cooler is equipped with corrugated copper 
tubes to absorb the slight expansion and contraction due 
to thermal differences. 

Sturdy construction and quality materials assure unin- 
terrupted service and long life.

Alberger Tank 
Suction Heater 




AlLetof&i. FUEL OIL and TANK SUCTION HEATERS 



FUEL Oil Heaters are for the purpose of preheating 
heavy oils to a temperature necessary for thorough 
atomization. 

In Alberger Fuel Oil Heaters, oil multi-passed through 
the tubes is heated by steam induced into the shell. 
Alberger offers two types, the floating head and U-bend 
construction. Each design eliminates severe expansion 
or contraction strains due to high temperature differences. 
The floating head type facilitates quick cleaning of the 
tubes. 

Alberger Fuel Oil Heaters are furnished with welded 
steel shells, seamless drawn steel tubes expanded into 
forged steel tube sheets and cast iron or steel covers. 
For special requirements Admiralty tubes and brass 
tube sheets can be supplied. 

Capacities and dimensions upon application. 



T 



ANK Suction Heaters are installed in storage tanks 
for the purpose of heating the viscous liquid with- 
drawn to a temperature at which it can be easily pumped 
through a pipe line. 

The shell of the Alberger Tank Suction Heater is inserted 
into the storage tank, near the bottom, and welded to 
the tank wall with the liquid nozzle outside the tank. 
This nozzle is connected to a pump which pulls the 
heavy liquid through the heater shell while steam inside 
the tubes supplies the heat. 

The method of heating only the liquid withdrawn effects 
a large saving in steam compared to the old practice of 
heating the entire volume in the tank. 

Capacities and dimensions upon application.
